2012 Beaufort St Festival
Bigger every year, didn't go last year because of work but this year figured I'd go again. They estimate 100,000 peeps. Not sure how they estimate them but I don't for one moment question that amount. It was hell crowded...
First up a taste of Sardine Zippoli, Italian origins I believe and kinda like sardines deep fried in donut batter, I left that selection to everyone else and passed.
It would appear that Macca has a camera mounted on his head in this shot

I spotted all of these photographs of local street art, printed out and framed along this alley wall. Then I thought, hang on these are my photos, this is my flickr set on street art. This dude has taken every single photo that I had over the past 8 or so years. I have some he doesn't and he has some I don't. I'm calling him my photography doppelganger. Only he thought of showing them like this and I did not...
All up a cool day, only negatives - not enough shade and the wine tasting area sucked, $10 entry for 10 tastings (fair enough) but the majority of tasting glasses had no more that 1cm of wine (10mm) poured into them. Which works out to around $75 a bottle for wine that probably doesn't pull more than $25 on the shelf. Wineries would have been hoping for sales after the tastings, but how can we tell if we like the wine from those sized samples. It just puts us off your brand and we walk away, that's why I bought truffle oil from the friendly dude in the truffle oil stand and not your wines.
